Floating Vs. Sinking Flies

Our American way of fishing with the artificial fly is to keep the fly partly submerged, especially for black bass. It is known as wet fly fishing in distinction from the English way of fishing with small floating flies, or dry flies. Our way is perfectly satisfactory for bass fishing, and in fishing waters where the fish are not sought much, but experiments have proven beyond all doubt that dry fly fishing is a more killing way in trout waters that have been hard fished, as many large fish may be caught where the wet fly fishers cannot get a rise. For dry fly fishing the liny dry flies, with bodies of cork or some other buoyant material, and only one fly is used. It is attached to a nine foot, very fine single gut leader, and a tapered line. The flies are of the eyed kind so that there will be no knot or loop in the leader near the fly, the object being to cause the fly to fall on the water as naturally and quietly as a live insect, to fall before the leader, and for the latter to make no commotion. The fly must remain on the surface of the water just like a real insect, and must retain a lifelike appearance and movement. The flies are dipped in an oily preparation to make them resist the water, and the line is rubbed with deer fat to make it float well. This method of fly fishing is being taken up in this country and is proving remarkably successful.
